Ciner Resources LP (CINR) announced that Kirk H. Milling, Ciner’s Chairman, President & CEO, has provided his notice of resignation to be effective June 17, 2019.

I am confident that Ciner is positioned for success in the future as our recently announced investments come to fruition and we continue our traditions of safe operations, continuous improvement and global growth. The future looks bright and the company will realize strong and sustained value creation for its unitholders.
“I’ve worked closely with Oğuz for the last several years. He has demonstrated a strong vision for our business and an ability to bring teams together and get results. I believe in his capability and potential and he is well positioned with a supportive partner, dedicated workforce and an extremely strong leadership team to take Ciner into the future.”
